Bestower of Fearlessness
施無畏者 (Skt abhayam-dada; Jpn semui ᆳsha )

    A title of Bodhisattva Perceiver of the World's Sounds. The "Perceiver of the World's Sounds" (twenty-fifth) chapter of the Lotus Sutra reads: "This bodhisattva and mahasattva Perceiver of the World's Sounds can bestow fearlessness on those who are in fearful, pressing, or difficult circumstances. That is why in this saha world everyone calls him Bestower of Fearlessness." The Sanskrit word abhayam-dada means one who gives fearlessness or safety.
